    [–] Ugin, the Ineffable and Ugin's Conjurant (Ben Stark Preview Card) MrXian -3 points ago in magicTCG

    That's kinda my point.

    Assume you bolt the spirit, which has one counter.

    First effect triggers, 3 damage is prevented.

    Second effect is to remove three counters. Which cannot happen, so it fizzles like impossible actions do.

    It doesn't say 'up to', after all. It's been almost twenty years since I was a proper rules lawyer for magic, though, so I could be letting my inner autist too much off leash.

    [–] Ugin, the Ineffable and Ugin's Conjurant (Ben Stark Preview Card) MrXian 2 points ago in magicTCG

    Would it, though?

    The wording is pretty clear - you remove as many counters as the damage prevented. But when there aren't enough counters, that cannot happen, so shouldn't it fizzle?

    [–] Running Shirtless Etiquette MrXian 1 points ago in running

    I was gonna say this too. The right kind of running shirt doesn't hold on to water, and they are quite cheap.

    [–] Former gamers of reddit, what was the reason you stopped playing video games altogether, or a lot less frequently? MrXian 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Time, mostly.

    I have a job, trying to get an education, have a wife, help run a charity, more friends than I can reasonably see in a week...

    [–] Who wins this Europe free-for-all MrXian 3 points ago in whowouldwin

    Didn't we do that a while back?

    [–] Fixing Quincy once and for all. MrXian 1 points ago in btd6

    You get one, then one more, then one more, wet cetera. Each Quincy gets one son only.

    [–] [WAR] Casualties of War MrXian 0 points ago in magicTCG

    Can you pick the same one multiple times?

    😁

    [–] [ART] Commence the Endgame (Auction has begun!) MrXian 5 points ago in magicTCG

    He would be powerful enough to be as large as he wants to be.

    [–] Fixing Quincy once and for all. MrXian 2 points ago in btd6

    Broken compared to who?

    [–] Fixing Quincy once and for all. MrXian 3 points ago in btd6

    Yeah, exact numbers should be decided during/after playtesting.

    [–] Fixing Quincy once and for all. MrXian 3 points ago in btd6

    Those details could be discovered after some playtesting. By the time he hits level 10, his sons cost should be almost irrelevantly low.

    [–] [WAR] The Elderspell MrXian 1 points ago in magicTCG

    Thanks.

    [–] [WAR] The Elderspell MrXian 1 points ago in magicTCG

    What Planeswalker removal cards does it compete with?

    [–] Ever have a “well fuck, I forgot that I will never truly function in society like everyone else, and that I will always stick out like a sore thumb” moment? MrXian 0 points ago in aspergers

    Sore thumb? No.

    But I'll stick out. I'm tall enough to often be the tallest person in the room. I'm smart enough to often be the smartest person in the room. I'm often the only person in the room not speaking the local dialect. I'm often the only tech-capable person in the room.

    I really don't need my autism to stand out.

    And in addition to that, standing out is a good thing. People that don't stand out get forgotten, ignored and in the end don't matter. Own it. Make it yours. Be proud of it.

    [–] Muslims Have the Highest Life Satisfaction Thanks to a Feeling of 'Oneness' MrXian 2 points ago in islam

    I wouldn't venture into the discussion about morality and atheism. There is nothing to gain in it.

    And yeah, moving to the Netherlands van be quite the system shock.

    [–] My mom keeps getting viruses on her windows desktop so I'm helping her switch to ChromeOS MrXian 1 points ago in chromeos

    A Chromebook allows you to put register her as your family, giving you rather extensive control over what she can and cannot do with it, so maybe it's a good choice.

    [–] New Autism-related Subreddit, and a Request for Help MrXian 2 points ago in autism

    I was at a presentation a few weeks back. Autistic guy who was developing something to help autistic people. He kept speaking about autists as brothers and sisters, and that made him sound like a damn cult leader.

    It's also a little confusing for people who tend to take words at their face value - is the new sub only for your family?

    [–] Muslims Have the Highest Life Satisfaction Thanks to a Feeling of 'Oneness' MrXian 43 points ago in islam

    Have you seen the people that claim to be atheists loudly and proudly?

    Angry, bitter people who actually go around trying to make the world miserable. It doesn't surprise me at all that they aren't content in life.

    [–] [WAR] Gideon's Battle Cry (Gideon Planeswalker Deck Card) MrXian 5 points ago in magicTCG

    Or you can use it to fetch a spare after using his ultimate.

    [–] [WAR] Gideon's Company (Gideon Planeswalker Deck Card) MrXian 1 points ago in magicTCG

    Even without it's Gideon ability, can't it grow in strength rapidly?
